Rose Hill School in Tunbridge Wells

Rose Hill School in Tunbridge Wells

Name of Head: Mr David Westcombe

Number of pupils & staff: 314 pupils & 45 teaching staff

Notable facilities? Over the past 12 years, more than £5.5million has been spent improving the school’s facilities. Rose Hill now has a 220-seat theatre, a creative arts and music centre, a sports hall and all-weather astro turf on a beautiful 17-acre site near the heart of Tunbridge Wells. A new £2million classroom block is currently under construction.

Famous alumni? From Robert Baden-Powell, founder of the Scout movement, to Ashley Jackson, current Olympian.

School motto? Nisi Dominus Frustra (Jesus adds meaning to our lives)

What makes your school special? The school’s size (classes have between 16 and 18 pupils) ensures that teachers know their pupils very well. No child is short of individual attention. Our excellent academic record is down to high expectation, a broad curriculum (which places high value on the creative arts and sport) and open, friendly relationships between pupils, parents and teachers. As Headmaster, I take great joy in seeing children grow in confidence and independence while developing strong friendships, a love for learning and a respect for others.
